Something Different; Two of my Favorite (albeit violent) Movie Shooting Scenes

During my recent small sabbatical from work I happened upon watching a film I rather enjoy, 'Public Enemies' starring Johnny Depp. If you are unaware, the film is about the notorious American bank robber John Dillinger and his downfall during the Great Depression era.


The following is a shoot-out clip from the film which I found to be excellent in it's execution and sound quality and even historical accuracy as this particular shoot-out portrayed in this actually did take place in Wisconsin,,,,,


Now this got me to thinking on another movie with yet another shoot-out scene set in modern day, 'Heat' starring both Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro (and many more) that I thought the very same about this film in regards to quality in the production of it.

Now I wish I could have embedded the clip here on CP but that option was disabled by the owners of it so I am left leaving a link to it which I give as the description to the clip itself below. It runs about 10 minutes and really heats-up at the 3:30 mark but as those that know the film I am sure will attest, it is well worth the time to view it in it's entirety.

"Scene from Movie Heat (1995) directed by Michael Mann; This is considered to be the best action scene on the history of American cinema...enjoy."



It is rare that I take interest in what Hollywood churns out at least on the pages of CP other than for what might be related to a particular topic such as background. That stated and the gunfights aside, I found both of these films well worth my time to view and not only once.

The Flash Mob Attack - How To Defend? Speak Their Language

Since I and others have posted on the now thoroughly scrubbed report MEDIA BLACKOUT - "Peoria Chronicle: Whites living in fear of black mobs!"  I have received much feedback via back channels and that particular post was off the charts as to hits (page views).

In light of both of those areas a good friend of mine forwarded a link to an article relating not only to that situation but other recent one's of the same nature and I found it to be more than worthy of just a link,,,,,


The Flash Mob Attack - How To Defend?



COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -- All eight suspects are in custody after a brutal attack in Five Points early Monday morning which left the teenage victim in critical condition, according to Columbia police.

CHICAGO, IL (WLS) -- The recent series of mob-style attacks on Chicago's Near North Side mark the first major hurdles facing Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Chicago's new police superintendent Garry McCarthy. The latest attack happened Tuesday night. A witness tells WGN 15-20 teens beat and robbed two people at Chicago and Wabash

AKRON, OH -- Out of nowhere, the six were attacked by dozens of teenage boys, who shouted ''This is our world'' and ''This is a black world'' as they confronted Marshall and his family.

NO. VIRGINIA -- Three people were beaten by mobs in Northern Virginia in two separate incidents that occurred within five minutes of each other on Saturday night, authorities said.

These events have consumed the discussion at most self-defense focused websites in the last few weeks. Accompanying the discussion is the usual hand wringing regarding what to do if one is beset by a gang of thugs bent on your destruction. Well, I have my views on this which will no doubt shock the senses of the Doodley Doo Rights of the gun world.

First, this was not some group of young teenaged honor students. In all cases it was a group of urban thugs. Second, they were not there to practice for their debate on the ills of capitalism. Third, they understand only one thing...violence. So understand who they are and be ready to speak their language.

1). Don't go to stupid places with stupid people to do stupid things. Simple but often ignored. Listen, we do not live in a fair world where everyone respects everyone else. Nor where everyone gets along. You may in fact be totally color-blind in a socio-ethnic sort of way, but not everyone is. So even if your liberal sociology professor thinks it is a cool thing to take a stroll at midnight through a ethnically homogenous part of town (different ethnicity that you), it is still a stupid idea.

2). Always have a method to defend yourself. Even if it is not socially acceptable, or in line with the rules of the day, having some sort of weapon is essential. Right about now, some of the Doodley Doo Rights are screaming that I am telling people to violate the law. Well, go and google these stories. Look at the faces of the victims...specially the one on life support right now. Put yourself in their shoes. Your choice is to arm yourself in violation of the rules, or to take the raping, beating and robbery? What would you choose?


3). Avoid if you can. If you are standing around and see a group of twenty young urban thugs about two blocks away yelling, "kill whitey", and looking at your reflection in the store window, realize that you have not been in the sun in a while, here is my advice - "RUN". If it looks like trouble, it probably is. The gang is not there to debate the effects of american corporate expansion on the development of the urban neighborhoods with you.

4). If you cannot avoid, attack...brutally and viciously. This is not the time to worry about some goofball fear monger's articles about being sued, nor about anything of the sort. It is time to deploy your weapons and attack the leaders. Listen folks, there is disparity of force by the sheer number against you and the knowledge you have based on these prior flash mob events.

If you have limited yourself by the rules and only have a knife, be certain you know how to use it. Make it big enough that it will cause extreme pain and bleeding when you stab the attacker. This is not the place for a legally carried tomato peeler that is two inches or less. You need a fixed or folding knife that is at least 4 inches long.

When the time comes, do not flash the knife like you are some crocodile dundee type guy ("that's not a knife"). Stab the first man deep and hard in his face and move to the next guy and repeat the exercise. Do the same to anyone within reach. When their buddies reel back, screaming in horror and pain, holding their bloodied faces with eyeballs hanging out, it will create hesitation. Use that time to disengage.

If you have a pistol, please make sure it is a modern high capacity weapon with a couple of spare magazines in your belt. The Suarez International company gun, a Glock 17 with three magazines, yields a sum total of 52 rounds. Figure three rounds per man, and you can reduce an angry mob of panga swinging killers into a fleeing group of bloodied bad guys. Draw it and yell, "Get The F*** Back!" If they do, run away. If they do not, shoot the first man in the face. The rest will take care of itself.

It really is very simple. Might you get into trouble? Sure, but being in jail because you stabbed three guys on the street is far better than being in the hospital having holes drilled into your head to relieve the pressure on your brain while the female members of your party are getting HIV exams in the next room. The only way to defeat brutality is with extreme and greater brutality.

Keep that in mind, arm yourself properly and if it comes, be brutal.

A Little Rule #5 For a Monday - Julianne Hough

I will readily admit to not watching much at all of television as I find it quite mind-numbing. Being that the case I missed this gal, Julianne Hough, wow what a beauty and a very accomplished gal!

Some may dismiss the idea of "rule five" which is their decision, but in my case in doing so it is my desire to celebrate women in general.

With the recent developments in NY I find it increasingly necessary to do so as well. (Nature should do this so I do not know why I even had to say that?)

Now is that not the face of one truly enjoying life?







While doing what should be the required research on any topic I found Ms. Hough to busy with a new film,,,



True, the film may not exactly be my cup of tea but 'ya gotta tip your hat too the gal for working at her career!

Note: In all honesty it is a ladies smile that always gets me which is why I lead with just that and is consistent throughout, a smile, and is my sincere wish that you take away from this the very same. Have a great Monday!

MEDIA BLACKOUT - "Peoria Chronicle: Whites living in fear of black mobs!"


Matt Drudge of the 'Drudge Report' has this story up but it is being actively scrubbed. I have with some time found what is at issue thanks to the Council of Conservative Citizens,,,,

Earlier today an article appeared on the website of the Peoria Chronicle about a rash of violent black mobs hunting random white people to attack. Then the Peoria Chronicle website was bombarded with traffic, in part due to a link from the Drudge Report, and crashed. It is still offline as I write this.

Since the weather warmed up a few weeks ago, there has been an explosion of brutal racially motivated black on white all across the nation. The “mainstream” media is doing everything they can to censor it.

Below is from a cache on google that saved the content.

From googlecache, originally appearing on the website of the Peoria Chronicle…

Tonight, around 11 p.m., a group of at least 60-70 African American youth marched down one of the side streets (W. Thrush) to the 4 lane main drag (Sheridan). They were yelling threats to white residents. Things such as we need to kill alll the white people around here. They were physically intimidating anyone calling for help from the police. They were surrounding cars. Cars on the main drag had to slam on their brakes to either avoid the youth blocking not only all four lanes, but a large section of the side street as well. fights were breaking out among them. They were rushing residents who looked out their doors, going on to porches, yelling threats to people calling the police for help.

Cars were doing U turns on the streets just to avoid the mob, mostly male. One youth stated his grandfather was white and several assaulted him on the spot. One police officer answered the call. The youth split into two large groups, one heading north, the other south. They were also yelling racial threats to the police officer but he was outnumbered. Another police car did not show up until after the youth finally dispersed and the patty wagon (van) also eventually showed up.

Residents are very shaken, both black and white alike. This is the fifth large mob action in about a month with smaller groups of 10-12 are out threatening children and adults a few evenings a week or later into the night. The times vary, even occuring during the day. In talking to the police officer, they are short staffed. Residents were advised to simply keep inside and to lock their doors. In other words buckle down, it’s not even safe to sit on your porch or go into your yards.
Black mob attacks on random white victims have been occurring two or three times a week in Chicago for the past few weeks. It seems Peoria, located southeast from Chicago is experiencing the same thing. Peoria is 25% black.

I am on a Short Vacation (Earned) From Work,,,,,,,Shining Star?

Vacation,,,Yep, I earned it (go figure) but it is a short and a working one (again, go figure) being my Bride and Daughter have a rather long list of chores for me.

This is not a problem for me as I am more than happy to do so but they are not, being when I wake. If you missed the point there, it is simple; they sleep in while I am a very early riser.

I usually laugh off the "QUIET DOWN" with "Hey, you wanted me to do this" and all is good. We all work together in this family and understand each other and our schedules but one thing is for certain; when I take a long weekend from work well NOISE is going to be heard at all hours of any given day.

So with that thought in mind I offer a musical  twist due to a common friend Amanofwonder (he has great taste in music) in the hope that you and he might enjoy,,,,,,,Y'all know the tune,,,,,,,


Am I a "Shining Star"? No. I am a working stiff and quite pleased about that. The shining stars around here are the Ladies! I am surrounded by my own  bright solar system that God has Blessed me with!

Folk's. the firework's are starting to crackle around my abode sending the dogs into crazy mode but signifying one thing, our Nation's Birth.and a celebration of it. Let us not fail that founding and those that gave it to us. No, lets be the shining star to give a fruitful nation onto those that follow us!

Treat each other well and God Bless!

Uncommon Knowledge - Andrew Breitbart "A civil war based on communication"

If you can afford yourself some time this interview with Andrew Breitbart is well worth it.

This is Part 1 of a 5-part series with the successive parts embedded at the end of each video.

Note: I am not sure just how Human Events / Hoover Institution set this video series up so if you do wish to entertain yourself to the entire interview be sure to run your cursor over the thumbnails at the end of each video so as to maintain the order in which the interview was held.


p.s., This post, not meaning to preempt my last,  however it is a good follow-up concerning the same subject matter on a general level.

The science is settled: US liberals really are the dumbest creatures on the planet

The following excerpt of an article is from James Delingpole of The Telegraph (UK) and I found it quite interesting that those in the UK think and know what we conservatives in America have known for years, that liberals are truly bat-shit nuts.

It is not a very lengthy article so I encourage following the link but I have included the video Mr. Delingpole refers too below the fold so you can see just where his valid reason for the article is prompted (more on that below).



Today I am in New York on my publicity tour for Watermelons and as I sat at breakfast this morning, chomping on an Ess-a-bagel and reading Thomas Sowell’s Basic Economics I found myself wondering – not for the first time – why it is that liberal-lefties manage to be so utterly wrong about everything.

“Because they’re stupid,” said a libertarian friend of mine.

“Oh come on, not all of them surely? A bit misguided, maybe but…” I protested.

“No really they’re stupid because they’re not interested in facts. They just want to construct their pretty little narrative about the world, regardless of whether or not it has any bearing on reality. And then they want to dump it on us. And ruin our lives. So not just stupid but evil too.”

Well, you know me: what a big-hearted, sensitive, caring, emollient kind of guy I am. I thought these words were harsh, really harsh. But that was before I saw this video. (Read more)


It helps our cause against insanity when liberals have access to cameras and microphones so that those across the pond and elsewhere can see what insanity looks and sounds like and the danger it presents to us and around the globe.

There is so much to tear apart in that small clip above it is difficult where one even begins to do so.

One thing about that clip and many others is that it showcases the complete propaganda machine known as the MSM which brings me to another point; we all have to stop referring to them as "mainstream" as certainly they are not.

I am not sure what the new terminology should be to refer to them (the media), but if they are mainstream then are we all not insane?

Alarms

Alarms. Think on how most Americans react to alarms.

Take a car alarm for instance, what and how do most react when they here one? If it is not their car, given the sound proximity, it is most likely ignored. On the other hand if it is indeed your car you simply press a button and it turns off, it's just a malfunction or the neighbors cat dammit.

Lets go a tad larger shall we as in the case of a house alarm. Say per chance a neighbor's house alarm down the street goes off, one might peak out to see if anything is "going on" but only after being annoyed by the noise, and it not being "their problem" most likely turn back inside their home and kick the dog out of frustration (dog barking, but never, ever do that) due to the incessant noise. Ah, but if those same people while away had their home alarm go off and no one,,,,,,,? I believe you get my drift.

The two scenarios I cite (and I know anyone reading this can relate to having done or seen) have to do with conditioning as I see it.

I am a dog lover but all must see across this nation the danger of Pitt Bulls and yet we all hear of attacks and killings by Pitt Bulls, all the time. Do we listen? No.

There are alarm bells all around us; economy, theft, mob behavior,etc,, going off yet there are those who either ignore them willingly or by what I believe the mass majority of ignoramuses are conditioned by.(not you if you agree).

I am no psychologist by any means, just an observer of life as I see it based on my upbringing and my surrounding's be it around my neighborhood, state, country or that of the world and I am honestly bewildered at the lack of awareness by the general populous when all these alarms are going off at the same time?

Sure, we know of the education or lack thereof and the MSM propaganda but just when does reality set in for an individual or that of a nation as a whole?

I mean really, all one has to do is open their eyes and ears, live in reality that is, to know alarms are going off left and right at ever increasing amounts and decibels for that matter in every conceivable facet of American life be a threat to their religion, their children's future, their own future, jobs, purchasing power, the dollar, their home, their car, freedom of movement, speech, defense of all persecution most namely the 2nd Amendment and if that is not enough of a threat,,,islamofacist sharia advancement i.e. slavery.

I ask, just what will it take to have Americans listen to an alarm?

I will attempt to answer my own question, sadly,,,,

Musical Interlude (Flashback) - the iNMaTES, Dirty Water

When this version of the original Standells tune 'Dirty Water' hit the radio waves in 1979 well I just had to run out and purchase both the album and cassette recording's (CD'S were just in their research and development stage at that time).

Granted this is not a true 'cover tune' as these British rockers substituted a couple of lyrics putting a UK twist on it, but as is often stated "Imitation is the best form of flattery".


p.s., Doing some housekeeping here at CP so please bear with me.
Thanks, Christopher


Rats at the White House? Again,,,,


From CBS News:

"From CBS News' vantage point on the North Lawn, it seems there are a few rats at the White House. Our cameras caught these rodents Thursday running through construction taking place on the driveway".

(Follow the link above for the video, below is a screen shot)



I say "again" if you remember this from just over a year ago,,,,,,,,,


Can we please get rid of the whole lot of them in 2012?

And I am not speaking of the rodent's as they will leave on their own accord when the garbage is removed.

Back to the Future - Herman Cain

My good friend and fellow blogger Western Hero (Silverfiddle) did a great post about Herman Cain and I would like to bolster that opinion a tad with this post of mine.

I, like Mr. Silverfiddle, have yet to proclaim any endorsement of any particular GOP candidate (as though it carries any weight) for the nomination as I agree it is too early and more will indeed enter the race and some drop by the wayside (Gingrich thank God).

I myself, as declared candidates go thus far, believe Mr. Cain is the only conservative in the race (no liberals, not color but the 2012 campaign for POTUS) and thus as my humble opinion goes deserves further attention.

Mr. Silverfiddle admits to being not a fan of YouTube and I fully respect that but must say, as most who happen upon this site, know that I am and for good reason I might add.

Secularstupidest offers my reason as taught to me from my Dad; Get it from the horses mouth!

Flashback or shall I say "Back to the Future" Herman Cain,,,,,,,

Please take time to listen, again if you have already, and or share with others as what Mr. Cain says is all true as well as the other people involved.




Trust me when I say that not many Americans know of Herman Cain at least around the northern States and all must make them aware. It is not about black or white but about all of us, period. Support him or not his voice MUST BE HEARD!

Forced Unionism Bad for Labor, Michigan

The following Op-ed was published in the Detroit News 6/9/2011 and I believe it is the best explanation of why all states should opt for becoming a "Right to Work" state as it benefits all worker's to and including the members of a union,,,


Forced unionism bad for labor, Michigan
Terry Bowman, UnionConservatives.com

"Right to work is a full-frontal assault on you, your family, your job, your wages, and your future," so say most union officials to employees.

As a union member, I have heard this time and time again. But is it true? Does changing Michigan into a right-to-work state mean the death of unions, collective bargaining and the middle class?

Clearly, the answer is a resounding no!

Just look at existing right-to-work states to see that unions there are alive and thriving. If Michigan became a right-to-work state today, the only change would be that employees could choose whether they wanted to continue as union members, and employers would finally start looking at Michigan as a possible destination for their jobs.

Along with the change in the business tax structure, right to work is the next step needed to bring Michigan's economy back from the brink of disaster.

As a 14-year, pro-union employee, I know Michigan must become a right-to-work state to retain and grow good-paying union jobs. Why? Because it will force union officials to compete for an employee's loyalty and refocus them on doing what unions were originally created to do: represent members inside the workplace.

Competition, instead of a monopoly, always makes organizations stronger.

The actions of union bosses become accountable and answerable to the membership. The focus is once again placed on the employee, instead of on a partisan social and political agenda that seems to be the obsession of union officials.

They would instead be focused on two things: retaining and increasing membership by becoming better at their created purpose, and establishing relationships on both sides of the political aisle to become politically neutral.

The proven disastrous tradition of placing their hopes and dreams in one political party, while antagonizing and deliberately making enemies of the other, has failed miserably.

Unions would instead have to sell the benefits of their services to employees, instead of forcing financial support as a condition of employment.

President John F. Kennedy, realizing the potential for huge financial and political gains for his party, signed Executive Order No. 10988, authorizing federal employees' right to "form, join, and assist" any union.

However, he knew there was a constitutional danger in forcing compulsory dues as a condition of employment, so he added the following words in his order: "or to refrain from any such activity."

Kennedy realized that employees have an equal right not to join a union.

In Michigan it can be ours also, but only if we embrace reality, become a right-to-work state, and remind union officials that they serve us; not the other way around.

True solidarity can be achieved only if we are also given the right, in the words of Kennedy, to "refrain from any such activity."

Terry Bowman is a UAW member and president and founder of UnionConservatives.com

Rule #5 - Rosie Huntington-Whitely / Transformers 3, Dark of the Moon


Not knowing of Rosie beforehand I did a little research and found her claim to fame is as a Victoria's Secret model so it is of no surprise that she felt quite comfortable in front of the cameras at Maxim,,,,,,,



Rosie is now embarking on an acting career with the upcoming motion picture release of Transformers 3, Dark Side of the Moon,,,,


I was never a big fan of the 'Transformers' until a boring, snowy weekend last winter when I viewed the first two installment's back-to-back on cable. Those of you who are aware of the series will like myself definitely view this movie and also miss the original co-star Meagan Fox (pictured) whom Rosie replaces in this third film as the female lead. I wish both ladies well in their respective futures.

For those of you contemplating watching this new 'Transformer' film but are unfamiliar with it's storyline I might suggest viewing the first two films in the series first so as to catch-up on the on-going saga. They are fast-moving movies and a little background goes a long way for a more enjoyable experience.

This Bitch is Insane,,,,Pelosi: Blame unemployment on Boehner, GOP

I do not know if any of you caught this with Pelosi on Face the Nation today? I, due to CBS/You Tube cannot embed the video but I believe this is more than proof the bitch is insane.

Really.



Bob Schieffer, to his credit, brought forth real-time situations and statements as well as past right to her and yet she remains oblivious to reality or so it would seem. The bitch wants to compare 5 months of GOP House majority to her FAILED 4 YEARS as Speaker?

I think the bitch has lost her mind, she talks about not wanting to go to the past just after bringing up the past with the usual 'blame Bush' which at the time of his last 2 years as President she was the Speaker of the House. The crazy whore was driving the agenda for 4 years and yet we have 9.1% unemployment as the 'official' number and yet she wants to blame the GOP? My Lord in Heaven, if this is not the current definition of insanity I honestly do not know what is?

The part I speak of end's at the 6:00 mark and the rest can be picked apart easily.

Just an observation, if you link to the video note the bitch's facial expressions when Schieffer plays a video of Mitt Romney, you can literally see her hatred come alive.

If I seem a little distracted as of late,,,,,,,,

If I have not commented on your blogs of late I wish to relate as to why. I never intended this blog to be about myself or my own situation but I think this deserves mention if you allow me to elaborate.

A family member of 15 years now, Bailey Dawg (my eldest Dog of two, Riley is 2 1/2) well she has seen better days, much better days and I, my wife and daughter plus Riley are doing our very best to show her the love we always have and keep her comfortable, fed and watered (plus COOKIES!) until the very end.

This is the proper thing to do as Bailey has given all of us here and those of our friend's all the love and much fun and might add protection that a man's best friend ever could!

I have relayed real stories about Bailey Dawg on others sites previously as warranted to their content (and you know who you are) such as when Bailey chased down the thief of my Bush re-election campaign lawn sign, that was really cool, she did not hurt him (as instructed) but damn did he drop the sign and run,,,lmao.

Some may know how Bailey and I met. Long story short, I and then my girlfriend (Wife now) happened upon a scene of young boys playing catch,,WITH A 4-WEEK OLD PUPPY! I grabbed the puppy, Bailey, with one arm and the one kid with the other HAND straight to his parents etc. then straight to the vet and we have not been separated since (except for her being spayed and she was soooo mad at me then).

Well thats the gist of it, I wish no sympathy as I just wanted to explain that alot of effort is being given to make Bailey comfortable as possible.

God love her, she still gets around albeit slowly, wags her tail, barks like she always has when necessary and yes she still shakes a leg during a gentle belly-rub! As dog lovers might know she also still smiles.


Bailey is, as explained to myself when she was 10 weeks old, a mutt comprised of Labrador and Golden Retriever plus German Shepard. The Shepard part shows in her 'mask' and size, her Lab in swimming and her Golden in personality. Many make one, but one of a kind she is! She retains the fight of a Tea Partier and that is to fight until the bitter end with many at her side!

The following reminds me much of Bailey as a little pup,,,,,,,,,


{The pictures are representative of Bailey as no real pics of her as a puppy have been transferred to digiatl format scanned or otherwise and I do not wish to diminish her memory with one now.}

9.1% - Employment "growth" slows sharply in May?

As Michael Barone cited this past week , todays linked article on Drudge about the rise in unemployment to 9.1% is full of the "unexpected" but Reuters takes the liberal prize in titling the piece 'Employment growth slows sharply in May'.

How anyone can call an increase in unemployment slow growth in employment really should have their collective heads examined and cease from referring to themselves as journalists.

Just the start of the article says this,,,,

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. economy may be in for a prolonged period of soft growth as employers hired the fewest number of workers in eight months in May and the unemployment rate rose to 9.1 percent.
Hiring fewer people does not add to the official number of the unemployed, that is caused by people losing a job.

The article goes on to explain,,,,

The rise in the unemployment rate from 9.0 percent in April reflected discouraged workers who had been inspired by the pick-up in hiring in April re-entering the labor market.
That is idiotic and false. Unemployment numbers are derived from those actually receiving benefits, so those "discouraged workers" were not counted in April to begin with. Further, since hiring was not taking place those same workers did not get hired or even if they did, not nearly long enough to qualify for unemployment benefits so again could not be counted.

A rise from 9.0 to 9.1% in unemployment can only be explained by people losing their jobs which means they were not previously counted among the unemployed.

I suggest a different title to the article; 'Unemployment growth sharply increases in May', as the only growth seen here is the number of the unemployed.

Malkin: The More Rep. Weiner Opens His Mouth the Deeper the Hole Is



I and most observers would agree the more Weiner talks the worse it gets but this is the part I don't get about this thing, if in fact he has lawyered-up (which being a congressman I am sure he already was) most would also assume that the very first thing they advised him to do was to shut-up.

I believe his ego and love for being on camera be it video or as it turns out still photography is the reason for rejecting such wise counsel from his legal team and as such he is his own worst enemy in bringing down himself.

Captain Underpants Gets Testy With the MSM,,,,UPDATED - Weinergate & the "Would A Parent Buy It?" Test



I find it somewhat refreshing that the MSM is actually following up on a question or two to actually get to an answer although I wish they would do so on more important topics as well other than a scandal.

------UPDATE (via HotAir.com)------


"Rep. Anthony Weiner refuses to answer even the simplest question about his claim that his computer was hacked. Would you buy these excuses from your kids?"
